SEVILLE (AFP) – Lionel Messi was in unstoppable form once again as he came off the bench to score an 89th-minute equaliser and preserve Barcelona’s unbeaten record in La Liga this season.

The runaway league leaders rallied from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Sevilla on Saturday.

Franco Vazquez and Luis Muriel put Sevilla 2-0 ahead at the Sanchez Pizjuan, but Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez struck with two minutes to play before Messi fired in from the edge of the area to extend Barca’s unbeaten league run to 37 matches.

Ernesto Valverde’s team can draw level with Real Sociedad’s top-flight record — set between 1979 and 1980 – next weekend if they avoid defeat at home to Leganes.
